#2 Transistion Towns

by Community Forests International on December 6, 2012

Over the month of December we're sharing some of the lessons we've learned over the years. Here's the 2nd lesson learned.

Communities all across the globe have come together to plan for self-sufficiency in our rapidly changing climate and uncertain global economy. These towns, villages and cities are working to create resiliency from the inside out, while limiting their dependence on outside resources. In Pemba, Tanzania, CFI is working with villagers to create systems that anticipate the challenges they face. This ranges from planting mangroves to stabilize coastlines, to catching and storing rainwater for periods of drought. What is your community doing to become more self-sufficient?
